The device will be located on their ambulance based out of Patong. Its main use will be by trained technicians resuscitating people involved in traffic accidents as well as other incidents and is expected to save lives across Phuket, the league said in an announcement.
“The company providing the equipment, Prosperous, based in Bangkok, have committed to providing an additional unit free of charge each time the first one is used to save a person’s life. The aim is for all rescue vehicles in Phuket to have a unit and save lives,” the league said.
“As a thank you to the Rawai Pool League the Kusoldharm Foundation Emergency Rescue Volunteers have offered to train staff at each of the 17 bars that participate in the league and this should take place in the coming weeks once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted,” the organisers added.
The Rawai Pool League plays its matches every Monday in Rawai and currently consists of 17 teams.
